PREVIEW: Doncaster Rovers

21 August 2018

Marcus Braddock previews tonight's away game against Doncaster Rovers

Tonight, Shrewsbury Town face Doncaster at the Keepmoat Stadium in the fourth League One game of this season. Doncaster have made a very good start to the season with two wins and a defeat, scoring seven goals in the process. Their first game of the season was a 3-2 away win at Southend and followed that up with 3 goals and a clean sheet against Wycombe at home to Wycombe. They kept the winning habit up and beat Scunthorpe in the League Cup but lost their most recent game at Burton 1-0.

Top Scorer
Mallik Wilks 3
John Marquis 2

Stats
The first interesting statistic, albeit after just three games, is that Doncaster have yet to score or concede a goal in the first half of any of their games so far. The second is that in home games two thirds of their goals were scored in the last fifteen minutes which could suggest good fitness levels throughout the game.

Referee
Darren Drysdale from Lincolnshire. Games this season: 3. Yellow cards: 12. Red cards: 1.
Assistants
Lisa Rashid and Alix Pashley
Fourth Official
Billy Smallwood

Squad News
Ollie Norburn should be available for selection after missing out against Blackpool.
Doncaster loaned defender Luke McCullogh to Tranmere in the last day.

Summary
As ever, I'm not sure what to make of this one so early in the season. On form Doncaster should win this but they did lose to Burton on Saturday so there are certainly chinks in the Doncaster armour. Manager Grant McCann seems confident, looking at the game as an opportunity to get another three points. John Askey should have some confidence going into this game after a decent performance on Saturday and having earned our first point of the season, I'm hoping that things will snowball in the right direction.

First Half:

The first 10 minutes of the half turned out to be an open affair. Both teams were looking to attack the opposition at any given chance. It was the home side that were getting the rub of the green early on, with most of the chances falling Doncaster’s way.

In the 18th minute Town should have been awarded a penalty. Shaun Whalley dribbled dangerously in the Donny box and was brought down by one of the Doncaster defenders, who appeared to get no touch on the ball.

Joel Coleman was called into action shortly after the penalty incident. Donny number 10, Tommy Rowe, struck a lovely half volley towards the corner of the goal, but Coleman dived well to get two strong hands to the ball and parried away any danger.

Town came inches away from taking the lead in the 32nd minute, through Lenell John-Lewis. Whalley once again dribbled into the opposition box and let off a shot. The effort was deflected and ran just past John-Lewis, but the striker was unable to get a toe on the ball.

Mallik Wilks was given a yellow card as the half was coming to a close. The Donny number 7 lost the ball to James Bolton and dragged down the Town right back, as he looked to advance up the pitch.

Luke Warterfall was also booked a minute later. The defender was deemed to have cut across Wilks, as the winger looked to run along the wing.

Waterfall came close to giving Town the lead right on the cusp of half time. The defender latched onto Whalley’s corner and directed a header towards goal, but the ball was headed off the line well by Doncaster’s defence.

The two sides went into the break level on the score sheet. Both teams had their chances but couldn’t calve out a deadlock-breaking goal.

Second Half:

Doncaster came out for the second half determined to take the game to Town. Donny came out having some success on the wings, but Askey’s central defenders were doing a good job in clearing any aerial threat.

Good work from Whalley and John-Lewis nearly gave Town the lead 10 minutes into the second period. Good evasive dribbling from Whalley opened up a space for Town’s number 14 to have a shot at goal. Lenell caught the ball on the half volley and called Marko Marosi into action, but the Donny keeper tipped the ball wide of the post.

It was Doncaster who had the next golden chance to put their team in the lead. Niall Mason flashed a hard and low cross along Town’s box but no Donny player could get a contact with the ball, to the relief of Coleman.

Town were beginning to have a number of chances in the final third. Greg Docherty managed to dribble his way into the box and challenge Marosi in the 79th minute, but the keeper did well to parry the ball away. The subsequent corner found its way to Lee Angol, but the striker flashed the ball just wide of the post.

In the 81st minute Doncaster received their second yellow card of the game. Ben Whiteman brought down Gilliead, as the winger was breaking on the counter attack.

It was nearly late heartbreak for Askey’s men. Doncaster were once again inches from taking the lead. A in swinging cross narrowly missed the head of John Marquis and the ball narrowly zipped past the woodwork.

The game ended level at the final whistle, with both side sharing the points at the Keepmoat Stadium.
